US seeks shift in relations with Vietnam

Forty years after end of the Vietnam War, US seeks closer ties with Vietnam to counterbalance China.

    It has been 40 years since an agreement was signed to end the Vietnam war. One and a half million people died in a failed US-led effort to topple Communism in the region.

    It took decades for the US and Vietnam to mend diplomatic ties.
